Arsenal in fresh talks to complete £40M deal – Arteta told would be good signing


Transfer Guru Fabrizio Romano has again claimed that Arsenal have re-entered talked to sign Lisandro Martinez this summer

Mikel Arteta is a man that has big plans for this current Arsenal side and has started to do some transfer business this summer – although the players that he has signed already are more for the future.

Arsenal’s late season issues came to the fore when Kieran Tierney was ruled out for the remainder of the campaign, with Mikel Arteta often having to resort to using unnatural players in the position

And Martinez is a player that has the ability to cover that left-back spot – but can also play in the centre and move into midfield when he is needed.

He is a current Argentina international and helped his country win the inaugural Finalissima against Italy at Wembley this month – and he was an understudy to Cristian Romero and Nicolas Otamendi last year as Argentina won the Copa America.

Initial talks have already taken place with Arsenal willing to offer around £25m for the Argentina international – but they will need to up that figure if they are to complete a deal as Ajax are looking for big money

Now Romano, via Qué Golazo Podcast, Arsenal have held fresh contacts with Lisandro Martinez’s agent.

“Arsenal had new contacts with the agent of Lisandro Martinez in the last 48 hours. Manchester United are also on it.”

Amid all the speculation football analyst Marciano Vink recently claimed the Ajax defender will be a good squad addition for the Gunners – but the Londoners will have to pay £40M to seal a deal

He said: “You never know, of course, but if there are so many economic gains to be made, Ajax should always focus on the next one. I think forty million should definitely be negotiable.

“I think White is good, and Gabriel is still a bit unpolished. Neither of them are brilliant builders.

“He would be brought in for the position of left central defender, and I don’t think they’ll take Gabriel out at Arsenal just like that. If they get Martinez, I think they’ll get him for the bench. As a back-up.”
